Credit Requirements

Law students must complete 90 credit hours, with at least 77 credits resulting from classroom work. Joint degree candidates may finish both degrees in four years by applying a number of credits to both programs. Specifically, joint degree students may satisfy 8 law school classroom credit hours through the M.A. program, so only 82 additional credit hours are required; 69 of those must be classroom hours. In addition to the general credit requirements, law students have an upper level writing requirement and a seminar requirement.
